I posted this on the medical story board, but upon re-reading it, I think it's more fitting here, can someone delete the other. Thank you.

Hello everyone!

I'm a 21 year old female and this has been happening for a couple weeks, but it seems to have gotten worse (or more noticeable) these last couple of days. I've always had random pains but never to this degree.

Basically, I am constantly in pain and everywhere hurts. It seems like my muscles are randomly firing, sometimes my feet hurts, then my arm, then my neck, etc. Yesterday I had extremely sensitive skin on the underside of my left knee to the point I couldn't wear jeans because it hurt so much, and today that pain has migrated all the way to my right arm. My neck is also stiff and it feels like I'm pulling a muscle on my bad when I look down too far.

Just now my right breast had some throbbing pain. I do examine it for nodes and whatnot, but there's nothing abnormal, this also happens with the other breast, my hands, arms, legs, back, chest... well, pretty much everywhere. My knees and elbows seem pretty sensitive at the moment.

I have a very light headache at the moment, but sometimes the side of my head will hurt sharply and tingle for a couple moments - a minute and then it's gone. I had week-long migraines in the past twice, but the last time this happened was 4 years ago.

All of this started getting worse when me and my boyfriend got a new pair of rats last week. I suspect they have fleas or mites, and got some red itchy bumps on my arms (that are now tiny red spots) and started feeling bad.

I sleep around 10 hours each night, quite well (wake up 1-2 times a night) but always feel exhausted.

Also, have had some abdominal pain and my stomach feels very tender/heavy at times. I also suffered from a yeast infection a week or so ago, but it seems to have gone away now.

I suffer from labial herpes (dormant, hasn't re-appeared yet since last outbreak months ago) and clinical depression/anxiety.

Anyone know what is wrong with me? Read more at http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=108161&ktrack=kcplink

You may of got one of the tick/flea borne things you can catch from rats eg a type of Rickettsia. I suggest to check out the info on all the types of rickettsia to see if anything could fit at http://dermnetnz.org/bacterial/rickettsia.html (note sometimes something can present atypically.. so not quite exactly the same)
